On Working with Children, Adolescents and Families
Raising children and helping them develop into happy, thriving members of family and society is the most important task many adults face. It can also be the most challenging. I draw on a wealth of professional and personal experience to help you and your child face these challenges. This can involve working with you to identify concrete solutions to specific problems (such as developing more effective approaches to discipline or finding more effective ways to manage divisive behavior), or it can involve working directly with your child to resolve the underlying concerns driving problematic behavior. I have a strong background in working with children of all ages, including very young children, but I especially enjoy and have special expertise working with adolescents.
On Therapy as a Way of Improving Life
I hold a deep conviction that therapy is a powerful tool to foster change and growth. We often find ourselves at a point where old patterns or current ways of doing things prevent us from achieving the satisfaction we seek, whether it be at work, in family life, or in intimate relationships. Therapy helps us more clearly identify obstacles to change and growth and assists us in establishing new and more rewarding ways of living. Whether it be a short-term, solution focused endeavor or a more involved analysis of one's self, I am dedicated to the therapeutic process as a means of change and growth.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist, having worked in the field for over eighteen years. I have been with Centers for Family Change since 2001. In 2006, I became the Director of our Northwest Suburban Clinical Services. Prior to joining the practice, I served as the clinical director at a community counseling center and worked extensively with children and adolescents struggling with severe emotional challenges and developmental delays, in both outpatient and residential settings.
